Cinderella, 1922. Tha Laugh O Gram Studios. Don't think international conglomerates with banks of computers making highly sophisticated and realistic animation. Instead, think of a couple of cartoonists, in this case, in Kansas City who get together and start to draw simple animations of fairy stories. The drawings are simple and fluid and really a lot of fun. These cartoons needed almost a thousand laboriously drawn pictures for each minute of film. The cartoonists were Ub Iderks and Walt Disney. Iwerks went on to form his own studio and make hundreds of cartoons. I don't know what happened to Disney.

without being cloying. The music does make a difference.
The cat is Julius, not Felix. Julius went on to star in many of the Alice pictures made by Iwerks and Disney.

Cinderella and Felix?
Wow! Is that Felix the Cat helping with the dishes? I presume the music has been added later. Nice to hear the piano follows (more or less) the mood changes of the story. Reminds me of the time I watched a lot of silent films accompanied by piano music in the Nederlands Filmmuseum (Amsterdam, the Netherlands).
